Dr. Miguel A. Faria: My Life

(from caribflame.com)
[Ed: Dr. Faria originally published this December 16 on his website, Hacienda Publishing. His is an extraordinary story, standing for liberty throughout his career, carrying on a proud family commitment. Formatted for DRGO.] I was born in Sancti Spiritus, Cuba in 1952. Sancti Spiritus and the surrounding area have been traditionally hot beds for revolution. The Escambray Mountains are in the vicinity, which rebels notoriously used for guerrilla warfare. That same year (1952) Fulgencio Ba...

To all who will be there---Thank you! Our man in Virginia, Dennis Petrocelli, has been a big part of the action and will be at the Capital with 2A allies from all over the country. Here, he describes how important this battle is and how it began, in the only proper form for an historic . . . epic.] . . (more...

Virginia’s Fact-Free Gun Zone

(from patriotgunnews.com)
(from patriotgunnews.com) If the Bloomberg-financed gun confiscation crowd gets anything right, it is its consistently beguiling messaging. In the same way that The Force in Star Wars bends the will of the weak-minded, confiscationists use language that requires us first to disabuse the public of their empty rhetoric before we can actually discuss the facts about firearms. In Virginia, the General Assembly has become not just a gun-free zone, but also a “fact-free zone,” rife with ad ho...

DRGO Letter to Virginia Physicians

Ed: This letter is going out from DRGO to physicians all across Virginia.Many of us are fed up and angry with the way our profession has lined up behind the irrational, unconstitutional bleating of hoplophobic authoritarians. Virginia is now the flash point. We, like pro-2A organizations across the country, are working closely with the Virginia Citizens' Defense League, which is spearheading the opposition. See also the superb December 26 communication from the Gun Owner's Association to Virgin...

No, Virginia, There is No Santa Claus

(from coloribus.com)
(from coloribus.com) Those who seek to disarm us have an uncanny ability to ignore reality.  The Richmond Times Dispatch piece by Josh Horowitz, the executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, plumbs new depths of distortion on the road to the opening of the 2020 Virginia General Assembly, accusing law-abiding gun owners of all manner of mayhem. Unsurprisingly, all the supposed sins of the gun owners were committed instead by his liberal cronies.  (more…)

The Violent Spirit of St. Louis

(from fox2now.com)
(from fox2now.com) On Friday, December 13 (how ironic), the mayor of St. Louis signed a bill into law which bans all firearms in the 110 city-owned parks, athletic fields and recreation facilities.  I am certain that felons-with-guns are shaking in their boots.  “It’s another tool to help police keep our playground and recreation facilities safe,” said Jacob Long, the mayor’s director of communications.  Prior to the passage of the law, Alderman Bret Narayan predicted that this reclassificat...

The Bill for Our Rights

(from funnyjunk.com)
(from funnyjunk.com) [Ed: We have published this piece annually since 2015 for Bill of Rights Day each December 15. The  Bill’s Second Amendment is the reason for our being, in more ways than one.] On Sunday we all should have been jubilantly celebrating the 226th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, the original 10 amendments to the United States’ federal constitution. Remarkably, it slipped by relatively unremarked. Yet our Bill of Rights may actually be the ...
